Mixed Greens Salad With Pears, Goat Cheese, and Fig Vinaigrette

I love figs, so when I found this recipe I knew I had to try it. The vinaigrette came out very thick, so I had to adapt it to suit my needs. Pared with the goat cheese and pears, this was wonderful. The vinaigrette's sweet-tart taste makes it well suited for a marinade for grilled or roasted pork and chicken.
